But the project took on a new urgency when Tom Wise heard another Chicago resident claim to have bought the very first Mustang sold to the public, with a bill of sale from April 16, 1964.

"We dug up the old papers, and I found the one with April 15th on it," Wise told Yahoo. "We drove up there and showed it to him, and he kind of did a double take."

Well it must really suck to be the guy who paid $5.5 Million for the now SECOND Mustang sold to the public!

Since GM of Canada has the records for these cars, it shouldn't be too difficult to decode once you get enough plates.
Then again, why bother if you have the GM Canadian DOC's

Here is another random Canadian POP off the web. It has an extra field with BCD.





No pic - just a red "X".

Hmmm, it was showing up for me then, but is also gone for me now.

I will try again.-

You might be right, but i don't think you will ever get that car for 30K. They are asking 70K. I can only assume they way over paid  and are waiting for a bigger fool.

If you want to buy from a dealer, try back in the day classics on Avalon at the 405. Talk to Gary K. At least they know classics.

A new car dealership is not a good place to buy a classic muscle car.  Those cars need work and are overpriced.

It looks like the sales managers attempt at making a quick buck based on book values like they do with late model cars. Doesn't work that well with all the variables on 40+ year old cars.


This 68 is having an identity crisis, labeled as a 67 RS, with 69 seats, mismatched tires, and the list goes on.

They do do a good job of showing the tires and wheels in all their ads, and the VIP service sounds like a good thing for your everyday car.

It could have sat on the lot for a while. Could have been driven by an employee or family member or the owner of the dealership.


08A 1966 car first sold on 3/15/67

I can't imagine a Camaro sitting unsold at a dealership for very long in 1966/67. They where in big demand!
Maybe it was the dealers promo, personal, or demo car.

trim tag from this car:

53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Canadian POP reissue on: July 04, 2013, 11:50:26 AM
That's what the first owner got, in place of the metal P-O-P that was delivered with U.S.-purchased cars; it was issued by GM of Canada-Oshawa, and mailed to the new car owner. Note the paragraph below the card where it talks about receiving the card in the mail.

So what happens to the metal POP placed in the car at the factory? Are they not made up for cars slated for export to Canada?

Is there such a thing as second owner warranty plates for Canadian cars like there is for domestic cars?

Is there any decoding information for the Canadian POP's?

Thanks for your response. CRG data on POP's is pretty thin.
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Canadian POP reissue on: July 03, 2013, 11:20:07 AM
Saw this POP over at Team Camaro.
Is this the type reissued to the second owner under warranty?
Must have been one of the first V8's into Canada with such a low VIN

That bright shiny trim tag was not there in the previous auction

I keep forgeting printed text shows no expression...just being facetious Ragtop. In other words, I agree with you 99.999%.



LOL, sorry my sarcasm detector must have been turned down last night. I can usually detect that.

I do have a good idea for acquiring this car at a reasonable price with this particular seller. I got the idea after reading the keywords in the Camaro sellers advertisement and a post on TC.

Just buy this El Camino from the Doritos commercial off EBay and offer to trade it straight up for the Camaro! No Hillbilly could resist this awesome opportunity!

Sounds like it'll go for pennies on the dollar; "There is ONE person out there with enough money".

Sure hope its one of our members.

It does NOT sound like pennies on the dollar to me. I am not sure how you interpereted the ad...

I don't think anyone here is interested in dealing with that kind of seller. At least until he gets a reality check.
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rare find '69 Z28 on: August 09, 2012, 04:12:51 PM
Wonder what he's asking for this "not cheep" one of a kind? 75K???

Jimmy V.

Well, he was asking 65K when he thought "NONE or your buddies has anything like this... " but now that y'all have posted about it being a rare color the price may go even higher. After all, "This is a very rare once in a lifetime oppertunity to own what everyone else can only dream of."

Champagne might be a rare color, but it's not what I dream of. Maybe it's kind of rare for a reason. Like the same reason it was repainted red.

That is why I am not sure about buying it, my thought is it may have been stolen.  It also looks to have had vinly top at one time,  no top color on trim tag, not sure if trim tag has been changed or vin has been changed. allthough it dose not seem like the type of car that someone would change trim tag! If trim tag was changed I would buy it but not vin.

That's not factory vinyl top trim. See how it does not go below the rear window? It was added aftermarket.

Is that written anywhere on CRG?

If not, maybe you should add it.
